2022 Eastern Alameda County Needs Assessment

2022 Eastern Alameda County Needs Assessment


In September of 2002, a Tri-Valley Human Services Needs Assessment was initiated to identify and fill service gaps and as a tool for non-profit service providers to leverage funding when seeking grants and additional financial support. This was completed in 2003.  In early 2011, following the release of 2010 census data, a broad-based assessment of Human Service needs in the Tri-Valley was conducted. This expanded upon the 2003 assessment as much of the Tri-Valley had changed since the early 2000s.

Since its finalization in 2012, the City of Dublin has been using the 2011 Eastern Alameda County Human Services Needs Assessment to allocate grant funding to non-profit service providers. Additionally, the creation of a Human Services Task Force, followed by the creation of the Human Services Commission, has further assisted with identifying and prioritizing critical Human Service needs of Dublin residents.

2022 Needs Assessment

In collaboration with the cities of Pleasanton and Livermore, Staff began planning an update to the 2011 Assessment following the release of the 2020 census data.  JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. (JSI) was the consultant selected to assist the three City’s and have proved to be knowledgeable about the Tri-Valley area, with a strong understanding of the unique human services challenges the region is facing. JSI’s approach to community outreach and desire to work with stakeholders coincides with the cities’ approach.  

Current Status

To date, a steering committee comprising staff from each City, Alameda County, and non-profit service providers has been established to assist with the project.  Quantitative date collection including the development of community profiles have also been established. Additionally, the establishment if the Eastern Alameda County Power and Action Committee (EAPAC) has been completed.  The EAPAC will help develop a Human Services Needs Assessment that is representative of the Tri-Valley community. The EAPAC will guide the development of focus group questions and qualitative data collection, ensuring all groups are represented in the data and that the questions are developed in a culturally competent manner. 

Every community member of the Tri-Valley will have the opportunity to be involved in any element of the needs assessment process, if interested.  For more information on current status, findings, events, etc. please visit www.mytrivalley.org
